Description:
A heart-stopping mother's story of love and loss, and a riveting drama thatlets us inside the secret world of therapist and patient.
Ruth Hartland is the director of a trauma therapy unit in London. A psychotherapist with twenty years of experience, she is highly respected in her field. But her family life tells another story: her marriage has fractured and her grown daughter, Caroline, has moved far away to Australia. Most devastatingly, Caroline's twin brother, Tom, has disappeared and has had no contact with anyone for two years. Ruth's fragile son has always been sensitive and anxious, the opposite of his cheerful and resilient sister. She cannot give up hope of finding him, but feels she is living a kind of half-life, waiting for him to return.
Then Ruth is assigned a new patient, a young man who bears a strikingresemblance to Tom. Ruth is determined to help Dan, but her own complicatedfeelings and family history cloud her judgement--and professional boundaries,once inviolable, are transgressed. When events spiral out of control, Ruthmust confront the unthinkable and reckon with those who truly matter in herlife.
Deeply insightful, with riveting twists and turns, A Good Enough Motheris a brilliant and heartfelt exploration of the responsibilities andlimitations of motherhood.
